French nail art on a flakie-filled cream crelly with stamping decals of delicious French food like wine, croissants, and french press coffee.

Simple French Cuisine

August 8, 2021 Lisa 1

It’s funny how the French are associated with cooking that takes many specialized cooking utensils and techniques and also the simplest and most delicious of foods. (Mind you, I am aware that making your own croissants would take a lot of work. So many layers…) I definitely can recommend all Read More

Elegant bamboo forest nail art with stamping images of a lady wearing a kimono and a house built deep in a bamboo forest.

Bamboo Forest Retreat

August 4, 2021 Lisa 1

I’m trying a new (to me) challenge this month because I liked its prompts the best: #Sammys2021Challenge run by @my_nail_envy. Its first prompt was Forest and I really wanted to use this image of a tiny lady in a kimono holding a giant lotus leaf and framed by some bamboo. Read More

A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

Bones at the Beach

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More

A plum flakie filled polish with earth-loving stamping images on top and a surprise nuclear explosion blowing up the planet. Oops!

Oops! Earth

July 28, 2021 Lisa 1

I very much believe that we would all be in a better place if we considered ourselves caretakers of the planet instead of its rulers. So many of the things we do that end up causing us harm (like higher cancer rates in certain areas) wouldn’t be possible if we Read More

Teal/blue-green nail polishes with soft watercolor-like water decals of yummy ice cream dishes (sundae and milkshake) on top.

Teal and Ice Cream

July 17, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look really shouldn’t have been so hard to get right and I’m not entirely happy with it, but it’s time to post it and move on. I had the nail challenge prompt ice cream and a few water decal sheets that fit. I figured it was time to use Read More

Pool party nail art using mint polish and a soft beige glitter crelly with stamping decals of anthropomorphic animals swimming and dj-ing.

Pool Party

July 11, 2021 Lisa 1

The prompt was pool party, a very summer-y topic, and I had this cool stamping plate with little animals playing sports. It’s nice when you get to be utterly literal except I realize now looking at this nail art that it’s an introvert’s pool party. Everyone is all alone on Read More

Shimmery blue and green ocean nail art with a stamping decal of a little white dog catching a wave/surfing.

Surfer Pooch

July 9, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s nail art features a cute little white dog taking on some “ruff” waves on his surf board. I apologize for the pun, but I’m pretty sure it had to be done. This pawsome look was brought to you by the letter ‘D’ is for Dog because it’s time for Read More

A purple baby boomer french tip nail art with a solar holographic glitter polish and starfish stamping decals on top.

Solar Starfish

July 8, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look feels very simple to me and yet it’s not. It has a negative space stamp and a reverse stamping decal of starfish, but then it also has baby boomer French tips with a glittery solar polish on top. And on my thumb I have another reverse stamping decal Read More

Nautical nail art in pink, black, and silver with lots of anchor stamping decals and a kiss of holographic nail polish.

Anchors Away

July 5, 2021 Lisa 2

Todays look is brought to you by prompts and whatever I have in my collection that fit them. 😆 My colors were pink, black, and silver from @WhenColoursCollide and my subject was Anchors from @GlamNailsChallenge. So that made this a nautical nail art from the start. When Colours Collide There Read More

Patriotic nail art for the United States of Zombies with a red white and blue crelly and zombie stamping decals.

United States of Zombie

July 3, 2021 Lisa 2

June was hard for some reason. I had to scale my nail art plans back to only the stuff I really, really wanted to paint and the @halloweenforevercollab was one of them. I really, really want to not miss this one all year. I’ve come close a few times, but Read More
